We’ve spent a busy summer with sister spin-out company GeoEnergy Durham working alongside WSP and Crondall, providing technical advice on Carbon Capture Usage and Storage (CCUS) in support of BEIS and the UK government’s drive towards carbon neutrality.

Congratulations to the East Coast and Hynet carbon capture clusters! Today’s announcement to UK parliament has confirmed that the two projects have been designated as “Track 1” CCUS clusters that will now go forwards for more detailed negotiations, with the hope that industrial-scale CO2 capture and storage will begin by the mid- to late-2020s. With just 12 days to go until COP26, CCUS is just one strand in the UK’s landmark Net-Zero strategy published today.
